Through the many challenging things going on in my world, I could have easily given up on this competition entirely. With school (for the last challenge was going through a week of midterms and going to bed in the wee hours of the morning, but I did not let that distract my for the competition), work and life in general. I had to learn to organize my life and allow it not to show in my pictures. Although I did falter in the second challenge I used the advice many of the behind the scenes magic workers, a.k.a. the judges, gave me (lol). I enjoyed the different tasks and products we got to use for the challenges. I hope this competition continues and produces great natural models.
I cannot thank you all enough for bringing life, time, money in to this competition and giving black hair the respect it deserves.
